Ultimate Masters: MMI Review
  • posted a message on The Standard Price Discussion Thread
    As I said, I DID look at TCGP Market Foil. .10 for Interloper; .12 for Shipwreck Looter; .14 for Storm Fleet Spy. I’m not sure what numbers you are looking at, but it’s just a glitch. Perhaps the glitch was on TCGP rather than MTGStocks and it was corrected between the time you looked and the time I looked.

    Glitch on MTGStocks? TCGP still shows realistic values. I only looked up Interloper, but TCGP shows Foil Market at $.10, with copies readily available at $.05.

  • posted a message on Revised and 4th Ed release dates
    Does anyone know where to find specific release dates for Revised and Fourth? Everywhere I've looked only gives the month, not the date.

    To answer the question before it is asked: I care because I'm cleaning up my set organization, and making covers for the binders. I like consistency.

    Someone who is more familiar with Cardsphere than I am should write a primer for it. I am curious what people think are good standards for percentages when they send, as well as listing wants. I read the article by Doug Montalvo where he listed his standards, but he is a different type of trader than the average. The average trader, who doesn't have nearly the inventory he does, will get nowhere if they wait for ~90% to send things.
    The majority of my trading stock is "playable" commons and uncommons. For example, I don't mind sending [card]Call to the Netherworld[\card] at 70%, but at what point does one send [card]Gush[\card]? 85%?

    I will say that I like the site. I like the system, even though they are lacking the user base. That's also how Puca was for the first year I was on there. I'll be honest: I still love Puca too, and I hope it bounces back further.

  • posted a message on Buy-outs - are things slowing down?
    Did you read the article on MTGStocks regarding RL buyouts they published back in August? I would be interested to see the tallies updated right now, after the explosion of buyouts the last couple months.

    I'm right there with you. I remember pulling one of the leather bags out of either the Revised or 4th Ed gift box in my youth... no idea what happened to that one; organization wasn't my thing in the early 90's. Eventually traded for one in roughly 2001 or so, and have been using it since.

    If I recall correctly, one had the leather bag; the other had cloth. I believe they both had the Magic logo.

    Which of the gift boxes had the leather dice bag?

    Is the current jump due to a buyout, or have decent results used it? Am I missing a recent interaction?

  • posted a message on How leaked cards affect the current market (across the board, all formats)
    I think that a fair amount of hype will remain until people see actual results post-release. I fully understand that a lot of grinders will start play testing as soon as something is spoiled, but there's a large segment of players out there who let the internet do all the work for them, and until they see tourney results, they will keep rolling the possibilities around.

    Also, to a certain extent, I think prices won't deflate until a percentage of players have the cards in hand.

    I think it's more likely that cards which normally have a post-release rise in value will make their climb earlier.

    Also, I could be way off-base, as I'm more of a lurker than poster around here lately. Certainly no expert. I don't really recall any historical examples.

    Quote from powuh_of_PIE


    Worth noting is the fact that even if I won't kill directly by milling him, I want to see if I can mill him to low enough cards that he'll draw the Emrakul and be unable to kill me before decking out naturally.



    It's important to note that you will NEVER kill directly by milling; they don't lose until forced to draw a card from an empty library.

  • posted a message on YMG Token cards?
    Anyone have any idea regarding value or demand for the Your Move Games double sided tokens? I have a handful from each series. They are on magiclibrarities here.

  • posted a message on Suggesting a price drop?
    It is appropriate to haggle price in an LGS; with certain things you can't expect anything (sealed product at or below MSRP), but I'm willing to bet you can get some movement on this. There would be no reason for the store to take any offense at the attempt.

  • posted a message on Kick the Scepter
    of course; that's what makes Orim's Chant soooo good on the Isochron Scepter.

    Edit: to clarify, with the Scepter you ARE still casting the spell, you just are not paying the casting cost. When you cast it, you have the choice of paying the kicker regardless of what you paid to cast the spell.
